This looks good to me overall. Three comments:

a) The change in polarity looks wrong here, I can't really tell
from the patch. If this is intentional, maybe explain it in
the changelog. With that addressed (either way)

Reviewed-by: Arnd Bergmann <>

b) In case you are doing more patches like this one at the moment,
note that I'm in the process of removing all unused board files
for arch/arm/, which will in turn make a lot of drivers unused.
I should be able to provide a branch soon, which can be used to
identify drivers that don't have DT support any more and don't
have any board files. Rather than converting them to gpio
descriptors, we can probably just remove those drivers.

c) I'm not sure about the state of the at91_cf driver. Apparently
we used to have three drivers for the same hardware (pcmcia,
pata and ide), and only the pcmcia driver remained in the tree
after drivers/ide/ was removed and pata_at91 did not get converted
to DT. I think in the long run we will remove the pcmcia layer,
so if you are actually trying to use this hardware, we may want to
revive the pata variant and drop this one instead.
There is no dts file in tree that actually declares either of them,
so chances are that nobody is actually using the CF slot on at91
any more.
